CLINTON — Sheriff Mike Walker told the Clinton Journal Tuesday his office was currently waiting for results from Illinois State Police testing of materials related to a local dog death.
On July 1, a resident reported finding a suitcase emitting a foul odor in a rural area of the county. Deputies went to the scene and opened the case to discover a deceased dog.
Animal control assisted the sheriff’s office in preserving the animal until testing could be conducted.
Deputies have conducted about 40 interviews in connection with the case.
